“Outsiders” is the theme for the next Momaya Short Story Competition – Enter Your Story

“They grew up on the outside of society. They weren’t looking for a fight. They were looking to belong.” ― S.E. Hinton, The Outsiders

The 2019 Momaya Poetry Competition is in full swing!

Momaya is now accepting entries to the Poetry Competition on the theme “Masks”. Our contest is open to anyone writing in English and offers the opportunity for prizes and publication in the Momaya Poetry Review 2019. Entries may be up to 1,500 words long in any style so long as your poem fits the theme.

We all wear masks, shields that hide our deepest fears and emotions from the world, facades we put on at work, with family or friends. Other masks are physical, like the ones at kabuki theatre, a masked ball or halloween. Explore the seen and unseen with this year’s theme and show us where the truth really lies.
